I have lived in London for over 40 years, and in Bow for over 30. Initially I wasn’t interested in the history at all, but through being a photographer I started to investigate further exactly what was in the urban pictures that I was taking.

Big changes have been happening since I moved to Bow in 1985. The whole of the Isle of Dogs has been transformed into an upmarket live-work area offering lots of employment. We held the Olympics and the resultant park is a great local asset. But rapid change is not simply a recent phenomena. The canals were swiftly followed by the railways and streets of terraced houses suddenly appeared. There’s been several hundred years of changes out here.
